Can Hearing Aids Help the Ringing in Your Ears?
Almost all patients who I’ve fit with hearing aids have some degree of tinnitus or ringing in their ears.Â Whatâ€™s the cause?Â So far there are a lot of ideas; however, no one as yet has come up with a cure.
The question is:Â Can a Hearing Aid help?Â The answer is:Â Most of the time.Â A hearing aid will bring all the sounds you are missing up to a normal level of hearing.Â In doing so almost 85% of my patients notice that their tinnitus is reduced greatly when they wear their hearing aids.Â About 15% say they canâ€™t hear the ringing at all and about 10% say it doesnâ€™t seem to have any affect.
A hearing aid provides correction by amplifying sounds up into the patientâ€™s normal hearing level.Â In so doing, the amplification masks or covers up the ringing.Â When the patient removes their instruments the ringing or tinnitus usually returns.
So many times I hear what the patient wrote below:
Tony Peatfield wrote, â€I had already tried other brands of hearing aids that promised so much and delivered so little, I was a very skeptical and despondent person, until I bought HearPod.Â Â Â At the time I did not know if the HearPod would work.Â After receiving them within a week, and trying them all my doubts and fears of wasting my money were gone.Â Your HearPod product is everything you say, and some.Â As I also have Tinnitus, but when I use my HearPod I cannot hear the ringing in my ears.Â Itâ€™s not just another hearing aid product.Â HearPod has set a bench mark of high quality, service, and technical backup.Â To be able to use HearPod while talking to a group of people, who donâ€™t even know I am wearing my HearPod is such a great feeling, in fact I forget I am wearing my HearPod at the best of times, they are so comfortable.Â Without hesitation I would recommend HearPod to any one that has a hearing problem.â€
If you have this condition and you have a hearing loss I would recommend you try a hearing aid.
